easy access

ok so I went out to my jeep just a few minutes ago and was thinking about how easy it is to access all of my under the hood goodies and those to come. has anyone had a problem with this? is there a way to prevent this? a locking mechinism or something that could be used?

I don't see why it couldn't be painted.

It looks like it just uses existing screws.

Of course my Jeep is silver so it wouldn't look too out of place anyway.
